Alan Sparks to Greg Carr : So you're a closet Dicky fan too???
Me: I do read his blog which I have linked on my blog since none of my other blogger friends update theirs anymore. So I guess that does make me a fan but since it's up there for the public to see that omits the closet part. I do hear you talk alot about the stuff he posts on his blog so evidently you must read it as well. Closet Dicky fan???
Patrick Savage's response : Quit being a Dicky hater Scoob. Jealousy is not a good color on you.
me: good one Patrick
Alan Sparks : Lol, I'm not a hater dude.... I like pickin' on them two because of their hero worshipin' mahahahahahahaha
me: Oh but you are a "HATER" Alan
Alan Sparks : AHHHHHHHHHH, you're a "mutual" too!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA
me : I understand the word "mutual" but I don't understand how you intended to use it here. Please explain Alan.
I'm not sure what prompted this post from Alan on my wall but evidently he forgot to eat lunch yesterday and his blood sugar dropped. Talk to me Alan, what's really bothering you?
So yesterday I was out enjoying Mother Nature unaware of the argument Alan was trying to have with me. I hate I missed it Alan, maybe next time good buddy.
So anyway I paddled a section of the Holston River between the Weir Dam in Bristol and Bluff City with a few co-workers who just recently bought kayaks. They asked me a couple of days prior to bring my Hero cam along and make a video of our adventures. At first I wasn't sure it would be footage worth watching but I figured what the heck with this crowd anything is possible. TVA had the generators running all day yesterday so it really picked up the current and made for some semi rough sections I would dare to say almost could be called rapids. The first couple of sections I filmed were nothing spectacular but the rougher it got I realized all the action was behind me. Two of the guys with us were a little on the inexperienced side, this was one guy's first day out in his brand new boat, another guy borrowed one of ours. I decided following them with the camera running might just make for a more entertaining film and wow was I correct. I'll save the rest of the story for the video which I hope to put together tomorrow.
I must say that section of the Holston was alot more fun than I anticipated. I have been on some class 4 and 5 rapids with a guided rafting expedition but I had yet to take my kayak on anything but the flat water of the local lakes. Now my interest is really peaked of what a true whitewater boat would be like in some real white water.
After my kayaking trip I headed home, swapped out my gear, ate a pb&j and headed up to Bays mtn with Melinda. Melinda was meeting up with a couple of girls to do a ride so I called up AKS and showed him around Bays for his first time. I have to say he did pretty well especially since he was riding it for the first time aboard his new pimped out singlespeed. Good job bro!
